The experiences of over 200 international managers and in-depth interviews with such global business leaders as Edward Dolman of Christies and Peter Job of Reuters show how to successfully manage the culture shock triangle: the emotional side, the thinking side and the social side. Marx profiles the characteristics of some of the world’s major business cultures—including Germany, France, China and the UK—to offer positive and practical advice to both organizations and individuals who want to succeed.
